Just a few short hours after Johnathan Joseph agreed to terms with the Houston Texans it was announced that Chicago Bears safety Danieal Manning has also agreed to join the team.
Manning, entering his 6th year in the NFL, returns to his roots in Texas. As a native of Coriscana, TX, he will be welcomed not only as a great addition to the Texans organization but also as a fellow Texan.
Manning’s contract stipulates that he will receive $20 million over four years including $9 guaranteed and $11.5 million over the first two years.
The addition of Manning and Joseph solidifies the Texans backfield and should make for a great defensive combination against the potent Peyton Manning. The Texans should expect solid play out of both of these players. While neither of them are considered to be top-tier players, their impact on the defensive side of the ball will be exceptional.
